Nadiya will be presenting the following workshops at the Astrology Rising 2020 Conference:

The Great Conjunction: The Divine Meeting of Jupiter & Saturn, in History and in your Chart!

2020 will end with a meeting of Jupiter and Saturn, both newly in the sign of Aquarius. The Ancients spoke of the great conjunctions, the immediate blessings and larger patterns they indicate. This fun and lively talk will explore what these 2 planets meeting in Dec 2020 will mean for us as a collective, as we look to the past for indications and forward for the enthusiasm indicated ahead. Ideas from Kepler and Jung and are some of what we will explore together. We will also speak about what the 2020 Great Conjunction will mean for each Sun, Moon, and Rising Sign.

The Uranus – Saturn Square: Making Sense Of Everything Changing Now

One of the defining major transits of 2021 includes an ongoing series of squares between Uranus and Saturn. Saturn is strongly placed in the sign of its ancient rulership, Aquarius. This move has brought us social distancing, and an expansion of our online selves. Uranus is the modern ruling planet of Aquarius, currently in the sign of Taurus, bringing revolutionary energy to what we value, and our relationship to money. This talk will explore how this important conversation represents experimentation and resistance to the larger, societal and world changes coming later this decade.

An Introduction To Astrological Magic and “Planetary Prayer”

Magic and Prayer may be what we need most in the New Age we are co-creating together now! Setting an intention, timed to the best astrological moment, has been one way the ancients thought to boost the power of their request- but how did they think those requests were sent and received? This workshop will start with a philosophical and historical exploration, before moving on to more practical applications, including some basics of astrological Magic, and will teach Nadiya’s  “Planetary Prayers”. The second part of the workshop will be experiential. Nadiya will lead the group in a meditation to help you connect with a planet more deeply, followed by group sharing of our insights. No prior experience is necessary to benefit from the lessons in this class.

Mars Rx: Individual Power in a Collective Time

One of the defining 2020 transits will be Mars Retrograde in its home sign of Aries. This can denote a time of individual frustration and consideration as to how to best use our power. The ancients considered Mars the god of war. In Jungian terms, he is our animus, the part within that motivates us to take action and own our personal power. So what happens when Mars goes retro? We get to turn this energy inward and decide what true power will be to us. Mars’ properties of self-knowledge become heightened, as we examine the ways in which we have embraced limited concepts of our own sacred masculine within. This class will look at the archetype and symbolism of Mars, as part of understanding what his retrograde could mean for us, individually and for the collective, as we stand on the precipice of a new age.
